On the domestic wiretaps issue, if anyone is interested in some technical legal arguments about whether the administration broke the law, there are some analyses here and here. Note that Orin Kerr, the person who wrote the second one, is generally right-of-center. The other analysis is by Lyle Denniston, a veteran legal journalist with no particular axe to grind. They both are pretty skeptical of the administration's legal justification for its actions, albeit for different reasons. And both admit that the technicality of FISA might affect their conclusions. For a left-of center analysis that's not as complete, try here.
